Forum: etree Subject: Re: Ogg Stream??? Yes, please!!

I've asked for this before, and I'll probably ask again, and again, and again, until they break down and provide it. :)

However, in the mean time, I'd like to point out that you can stream the ogg files yourself. Just grab, say, the VBR M3U file, and edit it to change all occurrences of "_vbr.mp3" to ".ogg". Then load the edited M3U file into your player, and away you go.

It's a whole lot of work compared to simply clicking the stream link and having the whole thing start playing automatically. On the other hand, the sound quality of the ogg files is very noticably higher, AND the files are smaller and use (a little) less bandwidth, so I usually think it's worth it to take the extra effort. But I sure wish I didn't have to, since it would be so easy for the archive to provide ogg streams in the first place.
